24 hours in Chicago...
A great time was had! One of my good friends and I were able to enjoy the city by seeing some sites, eating amazing food, drinking fancy cocktails, and well simply, enjoying life!
🏨- Hilton Garden Inn Downtown/Miracle Mile- Excellent location! In the middle of shopping, restaurants, and accessible to the train. Rooms are clean and spacious. Restaurant available inside the hotel.
Restaurant 🍱- Kitchen and Kocktails- Fantastic! Black owned restaurant. Staff was very friendly and helpful! Jasmine was such a wonderful host! My friend had the fried catfish, which he said was really good! The drinks got a 8/10! But the star of the show was my cajun pasta that comes topped with a fries crab cluster! I ranted and raved about my dish throughout the night and the next day! I will gladly back to Chicago just for that dish!
☕️-Starbucks Reserve- If you ever get to visit a city that has a Starbucks Reserve, go! This Starbucks has 4 floors, with variuos tartes, treats, and tasty alcoholic beverages. The baristas were so welcoming and friendly! They allowed us to taste new things that are being added to the menu in the next few months, as well as gave us full snacks to sample.
Chicago is probably one of my top 10 day trip locations. Add it to your "must visit" list and tell me what you think!
